Finding the best vet for the right price isn't easy, but it is important.

Finding the right vet for your family pet isn’t easy… but it is important.

“They are family. If they’re sick, we’re sick. I worry about them all the time, even to find the perfect house-sitter if I want to take a vacation. They want to learn. They love to learn. and they want to be obedient. and they want to make you make you happy. That’s their goal in life.”
-Cheryl Marone, Animal Lover

Cheryl Marone doesn’t just say she loves animals… she shows it. She has more than a dozen dogs and cats: she’s taken in strays, adopted sick animals, and treats them all like family: including finding the best possile medical care. How does she suggest finding a vet?

“Word of mouth. Think of friends, think of people who have pets and I would call them up and ask them.”
-Cheryl Marone, Animal Lover

So personal referrals are the place to start. Other sources are local dog clubs… especially if you have a purebred. Or online resources like Angie’s list or review sites. And once you have a short list? Give em a call.

“The people who answer the phone it’s also very important. If I get put on hold for a long period of time, if their answers to me are suitable for me…”
-Cheryl Marone, Animal Lover

And don’t be shy when it comes to talking price.

“Prices are important: if their prices are ridiculous, I don’t bother.”
-Cheryl Marone, Animal Lover

And when you think you may have found a match, time to take your animal for an office visit. See if the facility is neat, clean and well equipped. Talk to the doctor. See how he gets along with your pet. In short, if you want the right vet, sniff around.

Bottom line? Finding the right vet is no different than finding the right doctor for your family. You just get some names, you ask some questions, and you get that feeling whether they’re the right one or not.
